They’re trying to change history—don’t let them. In the chaotic atmosphere of 2020, the Internet Archive is a crucial resource in the fight against misinformation, and we need your help. Right now we’re preserving history as it unfolds, even as it’s unfolding in ways we’ve never seen before. We’re hard at work preserving the record of what’s being said, who’s saying it, and when, creating a verifiable record of rapidly changing situations. We rely on the generosity of individuals in order to do this critical work.

This sounds horrible
Whoever used that digital noise reduction on this killed it. That swirling sound you hear makes it obvious how badly this was ruined. This is also NOT from a cassette master.

What a night!
The doors opened at 7. The show was supposed to start at 7.30, but usually at the Rainbow that would mean around 9. With the house lights on, we wandered down to the front to check the equipment. It was ten past seven and there were perhaps fifty people in the place, no seats, just empty floor. Imagine our amazement when the band came out and started playing - they were that keen, and we few felt like we were so special. The mix of Alabama was all over the place - perhaps they took the sound men by surprise too. Being English, we didn't call out during the music but listened hard and flew with them through a wonderful set, from deep quiet to spine-jarring noise. The drums close up was thrilling. It's great to hear it again and remember that night's mutual respect, which lives on at this archive.

Good show, but...
This shn source sounds like it went to mp3 or something. There's a constant digital wind chimey noise in the background for the entire show. Listen to the beginning of Peggy-0 and you can hear what I'm talking about.

My 2nd GD concert!
This was my second ever Dead concert, so it was something special for me.
The Rainbow in London is/was a very special venue - very intimate with a close balcony circling above - the Dead played well here.
My strongest memories are of the second set, where we all got very spaced out along with the Dead...

I'd give this 4 stars but, song after song, I don't hear Bobby in the mix, as in not at all. Maybe he shows up for Estimated, but if you're a fan of his like me, as nice as Brent's playing is here, you'll wonder what happened to the rhythm guitar. I'm not the Pope so I could be missing something here in the woods--listen for yourself.

Yeah, this is a great sounding show!I just burned it to cd. The lossless worked for me...Just a thought but which shn tool are you using? the one first suggested by the Archive in FAQ was mKe something or other, and it sucked for me. I then tried the second one they suggest-"Foobar2000" and it's way better. Not one error or corrupt file or any other problems. It just grabs those shn and flac files and converts them to wav so they're ready to go on your cd. Try it?
